Ghost Fish Speak

A Film Dance/Performance by Jo Andres


800 Chestnut Street

San Francisco, CA, 94133

“I’m interested in mystery, the kinds of things that creep out in the dark — that scary edge. I like a mixture of funny and scary, of primitive and futuristic.” (J.A.) New York artist Jo Andres makes her Bay Area debut with a performance which integrates body movement, projected images and lights cast onto translucent screens and painted boards to create a liquidy visual flow that shifts eerily between 2 and 3 dimensions. Ghost Fish Speak is a mesmerizing and disorienting theatrical experience that suggests Balinese trance dances, magic lantern shows and fantasy theater. Performed with Cynthia Meyers. “Mysteriously beautiful and disturbing, a mass of paradoxes.” (S. Banes, Village Voice) Jo Andres will also be an Artist-In-Residence at the Exploratorium from October 14th-18th.
